    Thank you VERY much everyone. We really do appreciate everything. A special thanks to those of you who attempted to or actually did brave the snow storm to visit the funeral home or attend the funeral.

    Dad's death was very sudden and unexpected. He was very active up to the day he died. He was born, raised and lived on the family farm, farmed untill 1993, was in the garden every year, mowed the lawn and would even plow the snow. We spent a lot of time on Lake Huron fishing during the summer weekends. Even this past summer he would get up at 6 am to go out with us every weekend on saturday and sunday mornings. He (Melvin Hemker) loved his sunflowers and is in the Guininess Book of World Records for the most sunflower heads (837) on 1 plant

    This past wednesday he got out of bed in the early morning before the rooster would even think about crowing (4:30 am), on the way back he fell hitting his head, this caused a blood vessel in his head to burst and leak blood around his brain which ended up putting him in a comatose state before the ambulance arrived. The doctors operated stopping the bleeding and removed the blood from around his brain but it was too late.

    At the tender young age of 89 he started his new adventure with god. He lived a full life & got his wish of a quick & painless death. Shortly before he went into the coma he told mom and I that he had a little bit of a headache.

    Once again thank you everyone.
    Dave & Family
